Application of Immunoelectron Microscopy to Clinical Medicine
- 37 Downloads
The principles of two representative methods, pre-embedding and post-embedding methods, of immunoelectron microscopy were explained, and their merits and demerits in application for clinical medicine were described. Some examples of the preembedding method were demonstrated with the immunoelectron micrographs. The usefulness of Laser Scanning Microscope in visualizing subcellular localizations of antigens was also discussed.
